I will be visiting the area from LA and my family will be coming in from the east coast this weekend for a wedding. We are staying at the Courtyard Marriott downtown (2nd St) so either walking or short driving distance would be preferable. We'll also be spending some time in Monterey after the wedding so notable places there are welcome as well.
I am looking for some great food recs in the following categories: dim sum (or a make their own noodles dumpling place), breakfast (home plate and mama's have already been recommended), seafood (for good oysters on the half, cioppino, and crab), and chinese.
Would prefer something reasonably priced and not at all adverse to the the hole-in-the-wall place.
If you guys think that there is something notable that I've left off, please let me know! I've only been to SF once before.
